    Did russia,(or any other warsaw pact country), ever build the AK-47 with a AK-74 type muzzle brake?
    Or add it on?

    Built, No.
    Added on, "possibly" but not likely.

    I don't know of any AK-74 type brakes ever being built by original AK makers.

    YES -- Russia, East Germany, Bulgaria and Romania all manufactured their own muzzle brakes for their AK-74 type rifles.

    NO -- The 'AK-74' style brakes were never used on the 'AK-47' rifles.

    Hello, some of the newer kalashnikovs coming out of Russia and Bulgaria are using the 74 style comp. I know of two milled type 3 kalashnikovs (one fixed and one folder afghan made) that used 74 style GB and FSB's along with the comp..... pretty soon there will be a third because Ken at Global is making it so

    The previous posters were referring to "AK-47" type rifles, not the AK-74s or 100 series

    You're right, an AK47 is a milled receiver Kalashnikov & they never had an AK74 muzzle break on them.

    I think he asked as a whole . AK47 is used by many to cover all 7.62 versions .Yes some 103 series new production has a 74 style break ,I own one of them ,Kvar sold them a wile back as well as 103 barrel assemblys with them on the barrel.

    The E/G's made a triangular folding stock AKM 7.62x39mm (for Police use) with an AK-74/103 type Flash hider. One of my friends found 3 in a pile of AK's a few years ago at H2 (airfield) in Iraq.

    because of the wide variety of kits available in the US there is a lot of mixing of parts and pieces. The groove in the buttstock was originally put there to indicate the rifle was chambered in 5.45X39 and found only on the AK74 types. You will see the groove in the wood stocks too. Now however I see all sorts of 7.62 rifles with the grooved stock as well as having the AK74 type brake that was not an issue item. One other point to remember is that wikipedia is not really an authority on any subject unless the author is. Anyone can write the articles in the wiki lineup and there is a lot of misinformation as well as good info there. There is a good site at guns.ru where you are more likely to find valid info on the questions you ask....

    Good luck
